No calming
devices
Amateurs start
outrage from scratch
residents
By Kate Taylor

Despite receiving a 45-signature petition, Moorabool Shire
Council has decided not to install speed humps in a Bacchus
Marsh Street.
Residents claim hoon driving and speeding in Manning
Boulevard was at the point where additional speed humps
were required – but a council report outlined why the meas-
ure won’t be approved.
“Following an investigation of the existing conditions and
traffic data as outlined, it is considered that the installation of
traffic calming devices is not warranted at this time,” read a
report tabled at the April 5 council meeting, in which it was
also noted that two residents wrote to council objecting to
additional speed humps.
“For speed humps to be effective, the site needs to be well
lit, relatively straight and flat with devices spaced at inter-
vals between 80m to 150m apart. While speed humps assist
in reducing speed, they are generally most effective where
the 85th percentile speed is 15km/h above the posted limit,
in this instance the 85th percentile speed is 5km/h above the
posted limit and the road has a combination of steep grades
and tight bends.”
While the report recommended that additional speed humps
would not help with the traffic problems on the Boulevard,
councillors did seek ways to show initiative in assisting with
the problem.
The resolution not to support the speed humps was passed,
but with an amendment that council write to Victoria Police
seeking that the speeding problems be addressed.

On paper, road to
be sold
By Kate Taylor

A wind farm company is set to buy a government road at
Yaloak South.
Moorabool Shire Council received a request from Pacific
Hydro, on behalf of the Ballan Pastoral Co Pty Ltd, to close
the road to enable the purchase of the (paper) road by the
Ballan Pastoral Co from the Department of Environment,
Land, Water and Planning (DELWP).
The April 5 council meeting heard the land is already
licensed to Ballan Pastoral Co by DELWP, and that Ballan
Pastoral Co owns the land surrounding the road.
“This property is the location of the proposed Yaloak
South Wind Farm and this section of government road is an
approved site of one of the wind turbines at the Farm (Wind
turbine No. 14),” read a report prepared by council officers.
The report stated that the road is unused, and that council
must officially close it before it can be sold.
The report recommended that the road be closed – but
